Return To Terrapin




Acoustic cassette (live) recording at Rincon Point.

This completes the suite known as "Terrapin", written by Robert Hunter.
It is the fifth and final in the series. Jerry Garcia died before he could put it to music. This music by Rodleen has Robert Hunter's approval.

core:
Let the sun rise.

vers:
Up these steps beside me climb to Terrapin and point sublime.
Robbed of reason, faith, and name; broken hearted, blind, and lame.
Slain by doubt, mistaken trust, abandoned in the rain to rust,
Shriveled by the heat of day; torn to shreds by birds of prey.
Shapeless in the fire's glow. Wont you tell me if you know?
Who it was we were below? Where weve been and where we go?

Lillies have the bees to tend them. Grasses have the breeze to bend them.
Broken hearts have tears to mend them. Show us stairs we will ascend them.
Stair by stair by stair we climb. Voices hushed through sighs by time.
Speak our souls in pantomime. Clear cold bells of winter chime.
Shapeless in the fire's glow. Wont you tell me if you know?
Who it was we were below? Where weve been and where we go?

Pale through this ghostly haze the dawn of the new born moon
Illuminates an ancient maze of rough, stoned hewn.
Trust your faith and enter through the paths the heart divines.
The sun lies at the center through the gates of creeping vines.
How faint the rays of former days in avenues of time.
But it does shine. Emblem of sight. Pride of the eye.
That shatters shadow and all the dark defies.

Shapeless in the fire's glow. Wont you tell me if you know?
Who it was we were below? Where weve been and where we go?
